just saw Les Murray saying that he didn't think it was that bada draw really and he thinks the Socceroos can pull it off.
I just hope Harry, Tim and co can get through the rest of the season unscathed. Schwarzer will be oh so important in defence and Pim please please please leave Holman and MCDonald at home. Interesting that FFA picked J'burg for the base camp.
I dont think the group is that bad but I dont know if we have the quality this time around. In 2006 we had all of our squad playing in big leagues around the world, this time round we have a lot of our players who are fringe players at clubs and that makes it difficult. We havent got stronger whereas other teams have.
Having said that, can't wait and hope we get through, Schwarzer/Cahill are the key and we need to find a striker who can consistently find the net, Im worried if we go 1-0 down we dont have a Plan B to nab a goal. A second round game vs England would be an absolute dream come true.
Have to disagree with you do tell. I am of the view that we are stronger this time around. If you look at our starting lineup v japan at the last world cup there should be at least 10 of them in south africa and of the 10 I would estimate that at least 6 are better players or in better form this time around.
Add to this Cahill and Kennedy who came off the bench that day and I think we are clearly in better shape.
